A Stormtrooper is walking across Australia for charity!

A guy named Jacob French is walking from Perth to Sydney to raise money for sick children. The walk is 4,100 km long (2,548 miles) and it will take him about six months. His goal is to walk 40 km per day, but he says that he is not able to reach the goal in populated areas because of how often he is getting stopped by locals wanting to chat or take photos.

He is a member of the worldwide “501st Legion”, a volunteer organization that wears high quality Star Wars outfits to help do charity work. He said that he chose the Stormtrooper outfit because it is definitely an attention grabber. The money is being raised for the Starlight Foundation. They help transform the lives of seriously ill children. If you would like to donate, please visit this website!
